Dear Mr Baines

Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request asking for information about MSc computing.

You may wish to note that Imperial College is planning to publish postgraduate admission statistics for all postgraduate programmes. We expect that this information will be available on the transparency pages of our website (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/ug/apply... ) by the end of March 2021.

Please find below the College's response to your questions.

for the sessions 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 if any data is available.

For 2020/2021 entry, for each above MSc programme:
1. Total number of applicants
2. Total number of offers
3. Total number of students accepted their offer 4. Total number of students deferred their offer to 2021/2022 session

The information you have requested is attached. We cannot provide date for 2021/22 entry as the admissiond cycle is still ongoing and numbers are subject to change.

Please note that numbers of 5 or fewer have been replaced with an asterisk.

Information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, Section 40(2), if it is personal data and releasing the information would breach one of the data protection principles contained in the Data Protection Act 2018/General Data Protection Regulations.

Statistical information can amount to personal information if it would be possible to identify the individual from that information or from that information and other information that may be available to the recipient of the information. Where small numbers are involved, the possibility that the receiver might be able to link the information to an individual is increased.

The GDPR principle (a) requires us to be lawful and fair in the way we handle a person’s information. Disclosure to the public would contravene GDPR principle (a) because there is no lawful basis for processing the information for that purpose. When assessing fairness, we have to take into account what the individual’s expectations are about how we might use their personal information and also any public interest that there might be in disclosure of the information. Our applicants would not expect this information to be made available to the public. We are not aware of any objective public interest arguments in favour of disclosure. This is a refusal notice in relation to the personal information aspect of your request, as required by the Freedom of Information Act.

For 2021/2022 entry, for each above MSc programme:
1. Total number of places planned to be available 2. Total number of applicants until now 3. Total number of offers until now 4. Total number of students accepted their offer until now

We are unable to provide date for 2021/22 entry as the admissiond cycle is still ongoing and numbers are subject to change.

If you are unhappy with the way that we have handled your request, you can ask us to conduct a review. Please make your representation in writing within 40 days of the date you received this response. If you remain dissatisfied with how Imperial College has handled your request you may then approach the Information Commissioner’s Office.
 
Kind regards,

Freedom of Information Team
Imperial College London
